Template Gallery or App Gallery? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1592433162 posted


    Total noob here.Smile

    I'm getting started with Webmatrix 3 and not sure if I should use the Bakery Template or choose a template from the App Gallery.

    My site will allow customers to create an account.

    Just Email and password.

    Download a free 27MB software product demo.

    It's java executable file: file_name.jar

    If they like it, they can come back and purchase the full version via paypal.

    After successful paypal payment is confirmed, the download page will appear where they can perform the download.

    Otherwise the download page for the full version is hidden.

    If there are any issues, or if they decide to download later, an auto generated code will be emailed to the customer so they can come back and download it at a more convenient time.

    And I would like to set up a space where customers can ask questions and get feedback.

    So a point in the right direction would be much appreciated.

    Thank you in advance for your kind attention.

    Everything that you want to do is possible.

    The Bakery template has a PayPal helper in it, but I don't think it works.


    Some people report that it does, but I haven't seen folks posting the working code.

    Hi wavemaster,

    Thank you very much for your reply.

    After a little reading and thought, I just dove in with the Bakery.

    I found the Paypal.Helper and added that.

    I see that the Bakery and other templates are just a really good set of already worked  out references for pretty much everything I could possibly want to do.

    Fortunately, the more questions I ask isn't resulting in a lot more questions.

    I'm getting there. :)

    Thanks again,
